St. Paul police are searching for two different hit-and-run drivers. Both cases occurred within 10 hours of one another.

In the first case a 91-year-old man was crossing the street near the corner of Lexington and Grand Tuesday night when he was struck by a driver and suffered non-life-threatening head injuries. He was transported to Regions Hospital.  Police are still searching for the light-colored S-U-V that struck him.

The second case occurred Wednesday morning as a 7-year-old girl was crossing the street in the 1800 block of East 7th Street.  A St. Paul police spokesman said the girl was hit by a gold or silver four-door sedan about 7:50 a.m.

The girl was not in a crosswalk at the time, spokesman Steve Linders said.

The girl was taken to Regions Hospital for treatment of a broken leg and other non-life-threatening injuries, Linders said.

The vehicle's driver fled and has not been found in that case either.

"It comes down to human decency, If you've hit someone with your vehicle the least you can do is stop," Linders said.

There have been 130 vehicle accidents involving pedestrians in St. Paul this year, according to Linders.
